Hillman City Atelier

Seattle, WA


City Cabin

The Atelier is adaptable, durable, and full of daylight. This garage conversion expands usability of the urban site, opening to the garden and creating an edge to a courtyard. By revising the roof structure, interior walls were removed, allowing the open space to be configured in many ways.

Interior plywood finishes, skylights, and a big sliding door transformed the humble garage from utilitarian storage to a warm, light filled studio and guest house that serves as the home base for long or short term visits, project retreats, or a home base for outdoor gatherings.
